Targeting clear outcomes

Adding globally unconstrained fixed income strategies may help investors to better navigate different risk and interest rate environments as they have the potential to provide:

Principal protection

Positive performance regardless of market, risk premium or interest rate direction

Low correlation to long only strategies

Delivering clear outcomes

In seeking to preserve wealth and enable investors to achieve the desired outcomes, Schroder Global Strategic Bond is:

Absolute return focused

Truly uncons-trained

Active risk management

Flexible and global


Strategic and tactical

Diversified sources of alpha

We believe the best way to deliver absolute returns is to diversify in terms of alpha source and time horizon. With such a broad alpha “tool kit”, we look to capitalize on opportunities— and hedge risks that aren’t fully compensated for — wherever they occur.
